  • “* A person’s Erdős – Bacon number is the sum of one’s Erdős number — which measures the “collaborative distance” in authoring mathematical papers between that individual and Hungarian mathematician Paul Erdős — and one’s Bacon number — which represents the number of links, through roles in films, by which the individual is separated from American actor Kevin Bacon.”
